1st International Conference On Cellulose Fibers
February 11 - February 12
The global cellulose fiber market is one of the fastest-growing markets altogether, with an annual growth rate of almost 10 percent. Experts estimate that sales will exceed $50 billion in 2025. The increasing demand for environmentally friendly and biodegradable fibers for textiles, hygiene products and plastic substitutes in packaging are the most important drivers for the growth. In this context, political regulations, which aim to drastically reduce the discharge of microplastics into the environment, play an important role. With 30 presentations, the program covers the entire range of topics: markets & politics, sustainability and circularity, new production technologies, alternative raw materials and applications in the fields of textiles, hygiene products, biocomposites and food (nanocellulose). The focus is also always on applications in which plastics can be replaced by cellulose fibers.
